Dave's Pick 29 (2-26-77, 3 songs 2-27) is @lemieuxdavid best Pick in the series. While I know you all enjoy the Terrapin, Estimated & Playin Wheel sandwich in set 1 and the Help Slip Frank in set two, there is a secret Philo Stomp about 11 minutes into Eyes. David Gans spotted this 20 years ago

Thanks for another Phil mentioned post Dave. I can hear the stomp, even though it is not as pronounced as pre '75 versions. It was like Phil was remembering it from days gone by, but does not want to fully commit to it at the first show of the year. Did he ever do it again after this show?
By the way Dave, I will have to agree with you about the 5-28-77 show opening 3 songs segue. I have not heard a better high energy opening then those three. It was like Jerry and Bob were trying to out do each other in turning up the energy level. Must have been a good one to be at. This copy does not get much love. Peace.

only once did I hear anything close to that kind of Phil stomping in the 80's.

About 2 minutes into the "jam without Jerry" Phil starts to take over - playing games with the natural reverb that is Red Rocks. Not exactly the "stomp" but close.

The SBD version is really only good for this "song" since Jerry is mixed so low in the rest of it. I'd really like a matrix of this one, if anyone who does that kind of thing is listening. The Aud's have tons of Jerry's guitar, he was cranking it on stage...I was 2nd row and that is how I remember it.

Should have mentioned that . I think that is the only time I saw Phil do that sort of thing . They are fired up . Even things like Mingewood kick ass .

Nice. One of my go to shows when I'm in the mood for '77.

I'll reach for this one rather than any of the May shows, as stellar as they are.

Dave, I agree this is one of the best Dave's picks . I like the mix (thank you Betty), with Bob, and Keith separated so you can hear what each of them is doing . It should be noted, that they are in good form vocally (the next two years in the same time period, can't say that )! . They sound rested, and raring to go . Getting Phil's "Stomp," makes up , to some extent for not getting that hinted "Stephen".

I was just listening to that last night while making dinner, and I was struck by how unlike it is any other Phil solos I know. It's more relaxed and thoughtful than bombastic (a word that sounds more negative than I mean it to be). But the Help > Slip > Franklin is the show's peak for me.
